Quote from: Dante Rising on December 11, 2011, 04:55:25 PM

And the slow decline of Bioware gains momentum.....

Yeah, I've been thinking the same thing. Even if this game turns out to be a huge success, Bioware as a brand will have become watered down and will have less of an identity. They've always been known as a developer of quality RPGs, but now people will just start to get confused when seeing their name.

I suspect the game will be only a moderate success at best. I haven't heard of any huge market for these kinds of games outside of Starcraft in recent years. The Bioware name will help (sadly, IMO. It's not really Bioware after all). Combined with the disappointing Dragon Age 2, Bioware is really close to tipping over into mediocrity, which would be a shame. I just hope Mass Effect 3 turns out well, because if that fails, I can't see any hope for them in the near future.

It's from a company called Victory, not from Bioware itself. Electronic Arts merely changed the name of the company to Bioware Victory, and the press (and people) are going for it, hook, line, and sinker.

Are you sure you logged properly into Games for Windows Live both before and this time? If you don't log in (or if GFWL for some reason isn't running in the background. You should check your system tray), your old saves won't show up AFAIK.

Quote from: rshetts2 on December 09, 2011, 03:33:01 PM

As far as the take on Irene Adler, yeah it wasnt the best performance but it wasnt totally anachronistic either.  Powerful and impressive women have used their brains and sexuality through out history, to get what they want.  Just look back at women like Cleopatra or Marie Antoinette.  We they rare and unique?  Certainly but they existed.

It wasn't just Irene Addler, but also Watson's wife. I don't recall if there were other notable women in the movie, but those two did not fit in at all and acted like 21st century women. Irene Addler certainly didn't behave that way in the books, where she in fact behaved rather meekly most of the time apart from a brief moment where she subtly showed off to Holmes without his knowledge (at the time).

Not to mention the whole setting. It felt almost steampunk at times. Having just finished reading through all 9 Sherlock Holmes books, I've become painfully aware of how much off the mark the movie was. Sure, Watson was nearly perfect and Holmes wasn't that bad. It's the rest of the movie, characters and scenery that messes up.

Just finished the main story myself. Was surprisingly short, actually. May have something to do with how the story progressed for me. It was mostly a variation of this:

- "Dovakhin, I need you to go to an ancient dungeon and retrieve an important artifact we'll need to succeed in our quest."
- "What, you mean this artifact I'm holding right here in my hand?"
- "Uh, yes actually. Where... How... Nevermind. Now we need to find a person who has been lost to us for a while."
- "Yeah, I think I know who you mean. I ran into him a couple of weeks ago. He wasn't very talkative."
- "You what? But... How... I mean..."
- "So, ready to go kill the dragons yet?"

This happened multiple times during the main storyline.

You watch too much American television.  

1) Bullying will exist no matter what...but it doesn't turn into homicide in every instance, in spite of what Law and Order: SVU has taught you.  A new haircut will result in being bullied just as much as someone seeing you with an after school job.

2) Our schools are not full of both extraordinarily rich white people and poor african american children, in spite of what Beverly Hills 90210 has taught you.  They're usually reflective of the neighborhoods they're located in.  In any case, social programs along this line already exist outside the school systems and they're not resulting in massive murder rates as rich kids walk by and decide to shoot the poor.

What the fuck? I need to walk away from the keyboard right now, because I've rarely felt this insulted on GG, OO or GT ever, and if I keep typing I'll say something I'm going to regret. Maybe you want to reconsider the way you present your points?
3888  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Gingrich: Child Labors Laws to Restrictive on: December 06, 2011, 10:03:00 PM
Anyone who thinks this is a good idea must have had a very isolated childhood. Fuck everything else, because the only thing the kids will see with this in effect is increased bullying. Kids will jump at anything to gain an advantage in the bullying department. If we, as adults, divide them into rich vs poor in this way, what the hell kind of signal does that send?

Let's put it like this: There's a damn good reason why most of the world forces kids to wear school uniforms. Think about it.

As for reasons to dislike this suggestion that none of you will care about: It will add further distance between the US and the rest of the world. Child labor is one of the most vile things society can do to its people, and there's a good reason why it's outlawed in pretty much every civilized country. The US would become a pariah and a laughing stock in human rights issues, and that's not an issue the country is well-regarded in already after the whole waterboarding travesty.

Don't go confusing engines with art design now! Both games portray a bleak quasi-realistic fantasy world. I believe the graphics look better in the screenshots above than they will in actual play. The camera angles look very deliberate, particularly because I can't imagine they'll be facing up much of the time, if at all.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on December 03, 2011, 04:23:30 PM

We watched it in between Buffy seasons, and Buffy felt like the reward for doing so.

It went both ways for me. Some seasons Angel felt like a reward for Buffy, and others were opposite. The worst parts of Angel for me were seasons 3 and 4, where every episode of Buffy felt like heaven, but season 5 more than made up for it.

Quote
There are two characters that sort of shouldn't have existed, IMO:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Lorne is one.  Never cared for him at all.  However, without him, we wouldn't have Amy Acker who is just fantastic.  The other is Connor.  However, the episode that spawned him is one of Angel's best ever.  The show is really a mixed bag.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I definitely agree about Connor, a character that could ruin any episode he was in. Lorne however was much better, though I didn't like him at first. He grows as a character and becomes sort of a more light-hearted anchor for the group. The way his arch ends is also awesome.

Nothing! I'll get Assassin's Creed Revelations at some point in the future when it's discounted, but I don't like neither Ubisoft nor the way in which they've changed the originally planned story in these games, so I'm in no hurry.

Haven't had much TV time but I managed to finish season one last night. My rememberer must be a little broke, need some help with the Angel / Darla relationship... and I guess we still need to use spoilers? This may stray into Angel's own series:

Spoiler for Darla:
I know I could google this but thought I would ask here. In the S1 episode where Buffy learns that Angel is a vampire, I don't remember Angel actually killing Darla to save Buffy. It was quite a shock as I would have sworn that Darla was the one that bears Angel's child. Or a child, in any case. Note, I'm not thinking of Conner and all that, but a pregnant Darla out in the rain allowing herself to be killed by Angel to save the child. What am I remembering?  icon_neutral

She's resurrected in Angel by Wolfram & Hart.

This reminds me, I read about a danish woman who died about 6 months ago, due to drinking too much water...3-4 liters in an hour over a prolonged period was apparently lethal!

Water is definitely lethal in large amounts. There's the occasional case of water poisoning during marathons for example, as people will drink far too much water in preparation for running. Those who advocate "cleaning your body" by drinking large amounts of water should be jailed for attempted (hopefully) murder.

Just a little warning: Make sure you're actually running Games for Windows Live before you start this game. I had mine disabled since it takes an average of 45 seconds to load during the Windows 7 boot, and didn't remember to turn it back on for Batman. The game didn't give me a single warning (though I did wonder why I couldn't bring up the Live interface) and let me play as normal. Played for about 2 hours then called it a night. Started it up again this morning and... there was no evidence I had ever played the game. No saved games whatsoever. All my progress lost.

If you're not seeing the GFWL interface, quit the game and make sure you're actually running the application first.

But did you both have the quest there before heading in? The one that leads you to the artifact? That was the most awesome part, and the quest seems to be quite hidden. I only found it after I wanted to see what happened if I reached the end of the world map, and then realized that the end is quite a bit farther out than I suspected.

Hmm, its part of the main quest, as far as I remember?

Is it? I found it quite separately from the main quest, and I can't really see how it would relate.

Spoiler for Hiden:
A crazy old man in a remote mountain island is trying to open a door, and this involves one of the legendary Elder Scrolls in some way or another (he's not quite lucid, so it's hard to understand the details of his scheme).

Holy shit, I'm mixed up in some really important stuff in this game right now, and it's not even related to the main quest as far as I can tell. The quest I'm currently on is the most epic of all the ones I've seen, and it's incredibly hard to find in the first place. It has led me through a massive dungeon which ended up in an underground city filled with incredible treasures (a clear sign that this isn't Oblivion. I really felt like I had stumbled upon the untouched remains of a powerful society) and what may or may not be the most powerful/important artifact in the entire game. I could imagine my character picking it up with trembling hands. I fought a named dragon underground and saw so many awesome things that I'm going to have to go back to this place later to explore more of it. You know you're dealing with exotic and rare stuff when you pick up a herb growing in the area and immediately get a quest to figure out what the heck it does. And the place has plenty of it growing all around.

Yeah, I have the occasional dragon that will just ignore me too. I sometimes try to climb the highest point in the vicinity and try to attack it with spells, but it just keeps adjusting its trajectory so that I can't hit. Damn tease! It sometimes even happens with dragons in combat. Even though I do the vast majority of the damage to it, it won't even think about attacking me. Instead it'll focus on NPCs and monsters nearby, even in the cases where they haven't noticed the dragon in the first place. It's so bad that if I'm standing within melee range it'll just fly off instead of attacking me, then go kill some unlucky creature nearby. I can keep attacking it the entire time, but it just doesn't care, and then it's dead.

And you know that steamlining, or rather, aerodynamic-ness Tilt hates so much? It's one of the reasons why Skyrim is being enjoyed by so many. Time let go of the stupid steamlined/aerodynamic comment stupidity. People who hark on that one little comment are just as silly as the one who made the comment in the first place. No one cares, or is impressed. There are a lot of stupid comments out there in the industry, and if that one thing got on your nerves that much then your say goodbye to your sanity after a simple search.

You really don't understand what I was saying, do you? It's not about the concept of streamlining, but that Bioware was so afraid of using the word that they tried camouflaging it by using a different one and pretending it was in some way different (ie. "No no, our game isn't streamlined! It's aerodynamic! Huge difference!"). To me that reveals uncertainty in their own product.

Honestly, it's very premature to award GOTY to any game right now. These things are naturally skewed towards recent releases that still are fresh. Let's get some distance from the games first. Right now Skyrim is probably going to win, but that may not be the case once it's been out a little longer and its warts become more obvious.

This is just ridiculous! EA has taken one of their studios, probably given them a solid trademark to work on (Command & Conquer), then slapped the Bioware name onto them. That doesn't make them Bioware, except in a formal way. Even so, it appears that the gaming community is swallowing this bait hook, line, and sinker. If they hadn't renamed this studio "Bioware", the game would have barely registered as a blip on the radar. With a simple name change they've instead made it come to the front of everyone's attention. It's a bit insulting towards gamer intelligence, actually. Sadly, it's probably going to work too.

I'm sure Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk are ecstatic about the way EA is treating their company these days.

It gives people faith because the Bioware brand is a good one, and you would expect they wouldn't release a game under the brand unless they were going to make a good game.

Yeah, just like when EA gave Bioware all the time in the world (read: one year) to create a sequel to Dragon Age, resulting in what is most likely the worst Bioware game in modern history.

It might have been the worst Bioware game in history, but it was still better than most games in history  icon_lol

Bioware may not have created a masterpiece, but it was pretty good.

Not good enough to maintain the brand you were talking about, particularly now that other companies have surpassed Bioware's skills in creating RPGs. But I'll let the cold facts speak for themselves:

- EA gave Bioware a little more than a year to develop Dragon Age 2, the sequel to a game that took many years to create. Bioware had to sacrifice important features like art assets (thus the repeating dungeons). One year is not enough development time for an AAA-game.
- Dragon Age 2 is the worst received full Bioware game ever, not counting Sonic Chronicles. Don't believe me? Ask Metacritic. That list is sorted by the average review score by professional reviewers. Even Jade Empire, a mostly forgotten and poorly reviewed game from several years back, fared better.

Not to mention that Bioware has started inventing new words when they are uncomfortable using the established ones. When they talked about Dragon Age 2 being simplified from Dragon Age Origins (which it was), Bioware avoided mentioning the word "streamlined", even though that was the proper word to use. Instead they decided to use "aerodynamic" about their design. They got ridiculed for that, as they should be. It's a sign of danger when a company is uncomfortable talking openly about their own games and instead have to use subterfuge.

Now that a third-party company is being absorbed into the Bioware brand, working on a game that doesn't look like it's an RPG, it becomes clear that the company is in great danger.

Quote from: Abaddon on November 24, 2011, 09:41:40 PM

Question for anyone playing a mage type post level 20, which element are you finding the most viable?

Dual stunning firebolts. It's the most cost-effective and dangerous combination in my arsenal at this point (level 25), and has been for a while. Spells of higher tiers are too costly compared to the effect they provide (I'll run out of mana before taking out 50% of an enemy's health with Fireball, whereas I can take out multiple opponents without running out of mana when using Firebolt). I occasionally use Lightning Bolt when up against mages, at least for the first few seconds of the battle. I'm using Close Wounds to heal up after battle. It's rare for me to use other spells than these, which is disappointing. There's lots of interesting spells to cast, but they have silly level caps to them which makes them completely uninteresting at this point, and which means I won't naturally level those skills enough for them to become usable again either. An example is Fury, a spell I used a lot of in the early game but which now has no effect any longer.

The magic system is a few steps down from earlier Elder Scrolls titles, for the most part because there's no spell designer.

Now the rules of PR say that they have to respond immediately with an expression of shock and sympathy to minimize the ill will they're going to generate over this.

I'm about 65+ hours in and just hit level 30.  I will finish this playthrough but if this is a bug it would be a major one and would hurt Skyrim as my GOTY canindate

I've yet to see a blood dragon... sigh

In my experience the dragons are far more common up north. Try visiting the mage college.

As a pickpocket, I will never want for lockpicks.  It's amazing how many citizens carry them; they look so innocent!

I guess they all figured out how much easier it has become to pick locks since the last game, so they're trying to profit before a patch.

Anyone else get jumped by a group of thugs, and then find a contract note from someone named Moira?  Holy hell these guys slaughtered me over and over again.  I finally had to turn the difficulty down to Novice to get by them.  I read this is someone in Whiterun that I maybe stole from, but I can't find her.  Is this a quest or just some random event?

Sounds like you're being haunted by the ghosts of Fallout 3. slywink

ok, im about to wait for a random dragon be-gone mod. it's getting a bit tedious now. maybe if they were challenging, but god. every time i fast travel to the mage college i have to kill a dragon.

I have read other folks having a similar issue with the Mage College, but personally in over 60 hours of playing, I have yet to see a single dragon at the college, and in fact have only seen a total of 15 I believe.  Is there a dragon burial mound near the college?  I found a burial mound that had a named dragon at it.  After killing that named dragon I have not seen any random ones in that area since, not sure if it is coincidence or not.

It's so bad at this point in my game that it feels like I have to fight one Blood Dragon on my way into the college, and another one on the way out. I try to avoid even going there in the first place now just so I don't have to go through that tedium again. Up there it's the cliff racer situation all over again.

I've seen several dragon burial mounds, but there has been no interacting with them whatsoever, and no dragons nearby. Perhaps you have to advance the main quest to a certain stage before this happens?
